Hankyung’s CF in China was originally in Chinese

Former Super Junior member Hankyung has been embroiled in a controversy over a video game commercial for the Chinese MMORPG, Tian Xia 2.

The controversy first arose when news of Hankyung’s acting in a particular Chinese CF surfaced. Netizens immediately felt that the CF was degrading to Koreans, as a woman depicted to be a Korean shouts in Korean at Hankyung, “Hey, hey, wake up. Do you think this is your concert? Are you going to move aside or not? Screw off if you’re not.” Hankyung then transforms into a game character and attacks the woman, leading many to feel that the CF is a reflection on Hankyung’s personal feelings. It also didn’t help matters that Tian Xia 2 recently beat Korea’s own mega popular MMORPG Aion from NCSoft for best visuals in a research conducted by IPSOS Group.

Well, it’s been recently revealed to us through numerous emails via tips that the original CF was recorded fully in Mandarin and the lady is actually Chinese and not Korean.
